Faces of Fortitude: Behind the Lens

Dec 1 2020 • 1 hr 3 mins

PART 2 of the important discussion around the quick rise in adoptee suicides.

My guests are all transracial adoptees and advocates in the community working to shine a light on the mental health crisis within the Foster Care and Adoptee community. They are also all have struggled with their own suicidal ideation during their journey.

In this episode we discuss the problems in the system specifically around transracial adoption and how the entire mental health and suicide community is refusing to address the issue at hand: Adoptees are 4 times more likely to attempt suicide.
